We’re a week away from Easter, and when you have a baby who experiences “firsts” every other day, you get extra excited when a holiday is about to arrive. So bring on every bunny item, chocolate eggs, jelly beans galore, a Sunday feast and of course, time spent together with family.
I decided to make my son, Emmett, an Easter basket, along with a couple little decorations. I had already made a little bunny banner for Emmett’s room, but I wanted to make something for our annual Easter egg hunt (my husband, Jay, is THE master at hiding Easter eggs and my family goes nuts for hours hunting). The end result? These cute and simple yarn Easter eggs.
What will you need? Some sort of egg shaped base (I used cardboard eggs that I found at Michael’s), yarn, a pair of scissors, and an adhesive of some kind. To save you the trouble, I tested with a glue gun, adhesive dots, double sided tape, and a glue stick; the glue stick was the easiest to use by far!
How do you make it? Simply apply your adhesive at one end of the egg, take an end of the yarn and start a spiral that builds around each other (think “yellow brick road”). Keep applying the adhesive and yarn until the entire egg is covered. Cut the excess yarn. Voila!
This project is fairly simple, but you’re left with a cute decoration that is not found at every single CVS and Walgreens check out line on your way home from grabbing eggs and milk. (Been there!) I bet this would even be a fun DIY to sit and do with your kids this week. The design can be as simple or as complicated as you would like to make it. The hardest part for me will be finding them at our egg hunt this weekend! Go easy on us this year, Jay! 😂
Hope you enjoy!
